About Our Events

The Fun Stuff

What does BYOB mean?girls painting scarves

You’re welcome to bring a bottle of your favorite wine, juice or soft drinks. Keep the adult bevvies on our premises only. Our studio is fun and relaxed but we do not encourage over-indulging. There is no wine permitted at classes designated “Kids Class.” Cups are available for you at the studio.

Can I bring food?

Sure can! Simple, easy-to-serve and -eat snacks are welcome. We welcome birthday cakes, fully catered meals and potlucks too! We are kitchen-free so make sure your munchies don’t require refrigeration or heating.

Who designs the original pieces for the art projects?

Local artist and Inspiration Uncorked owner Mary Higgins and her team design all the original art. We make sure it’s fun and easy to re-create. You’re welcome to add your own flavor and inspirations into your piece.

The Nuts & Bolts

Is there a minimum age requirement?

Teens age 16 and over are welcome to attend our BYOB events, but guests must be at least 21 years of age to consume wine. Check our schedule for special kids classes (for children ages 7 and over). All children must be accompanied by an adult who must stay for the entire class.

What is included in the class fee?

Inspiration Uncorked supplies everything you need to complete your project: paints, brushes, chalk, canvas and paper (sizes vary, see individual class descriptions), metals, gems, beads, and findings for jewelry, fabric for textile projects, plus group instruction by a trained artist. In addition we provide aprons to protect your clothing, but please come dressed in casual clothing – accidents may happen! Inspiration Uncorked is not responsible for damage to clothing.

How long do the events last?

Each project is completed during a single afternoon or evening event. Events last from 2 to 3 hours. See our schedule for estimated beginning and end times of individual classes. We say estimated because the classes are about you, plus we’re an art studio not a board meeting. Relax, we might get started a few minutes early if you’re all here or we might start 15-minutes later to make sure your whole party is here.

Do I need to arrive early?

Plan to arrive about 15 minutes before class starts. If you need to set up food and beverages and wish to arrive earlier call the studio in advance to coordinate. Register online in advance. We do accept same day reservations but there may no longer be spots available.

Class prices vary. Please see the schedule for more details.

How do I register for classes?

Visit the schedule tab and click on the class you would like to join. Choose the number of tickets you need then click “Add to Cart” and “Proceed to Checkout”. While our site is secured with an SSL certificate for your protection, we recommend using a credit card to checkout for your added security. Buy your tickets in advance – we have limited seating.

Is there a cutoff date/time for registration?

It depends on the day and the class. Class sizes are limited and you may miss out if you don’t register online when you see a class you like. This is really important if you plan to bring friends. Once a class fills up, the “Tickets” option will no longer be available on our website. If you have questions about registration or late registration, call the studio at 248-877-8689. We ask that you reserve your seat at least 48-hours in advance.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We encourage online pre-registration with your VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit cards.

What is your cancellation policy?

We do allow cancellations or you may transfer your registration to another event, but we require a minimum of 48 hours notice to provide a full refund or reschedule. This provides us the opportunity to fill the space and reschedule our teachers. Cancellations/reschedules should be made via email (be sure to provide your phone number) or by phone. Your credit card will be charged the full event fee for reservations not cancelled 48 hours in advance. Public classes are subject to cancellation without a minimum of 10 attendees, or at the owner’s discretion. Cancellations are very rare and customers will be notified via phone and/or email of cancelled classes and given the opportunity to reschedule.
